About Cook’s Pest Control

Cook’s Pest Control was founded by John L. Cook in 1928 as “North Alabama Termite Control.” After his death in 1950, his son, John R. Cook, took over the company and changed the company’s name to Cook’s Pest Control. John R., a Pest Management Professional Hall of Famer (Class of 2015), helped Cook’s Pest Control become the eighth-largest pest control company in the U.S. at the time.

Cook’s Pest Control serves homeowners and businesses across the Southeast. The company offers services in pest control, termite control, mosquito control and bed bug removal. All Cook Pest Control technicians and inspectors receive comprehensive computer-based, classroom and field training. In 2015, the company opened an employee training facility in Decatur, Ala.

In 2016, Cook’s Pest Control opened a new office in Pensacola, Fla., which is the company’s first office in Florida. The company now serves customers in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Florida, Mississippi and Tennessee with 40 offices.
